30 January 2012

A comprehensive and rapid actuator retrofit for E.ON’s German power plant, Franken 1 was completed by SIPOS Aktorik. In just four weeks, 80 pipeline valves were replaced, 120 original actuators were removed and 200 new SIPOS Flash 5 electric actuators mounted and commissioned.

The 790 MW power plant’s control system is managed by Siemens. SIPOS collaborated closely in the commissioning of complete units, demonstrating its total service support capabilities.

Commenting on the company’s success managing this prestigious power industry contract, Holger Scholz, a key account manager for SIPOS said:
